Chelsea reaches settlement with former doctor at tribunal

LONDON: Chelsea has reached a settlement with its former club doctor at the start of an employment tribunal.

Details were not disclosed Tuesday at the Croydon Employment Tribunal.

Carneiro was dropped from first-team duties after former manager Jose Mourinho accused the medical staff of being "naive" for treating Eden Hazard on the field with Chelsea already down to 10 men in last season's Premier League opener in August.

Carneiro said in legal documents that as she ran onto the field, Mourinho shouted an insult and subjected her to sexual discrimination.

Chelsea says it "regrets the circumstances which led to Dr. Carneiro leaving the club and apologizes unreservedly to her and her family for the distress caused."
